About Statum

Fuse acrobatic virtuosity and live biometric data and you get Statum – a circus show like no other.
“Engaging and unique… should be applauded for their creativity and innovation.”
Luisa Ryan, Scenestr

A brand-new physical performance by the award-winning Flipside Circus and Counterpilot in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse, Statum is a new kind of circus spectacle.

On average we produce around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. Our lives are edited, recorded and uploaded.

Inspired by a series of techno-circus experiments, Statum explores the interplay between human bodies and technology – audiences are invited to inhabit performer’s bodies, analyse their heart rate, and explore the relationship between acrobats and the digital in this astounding re-imagining of movement and circus.

Flipside Circus' Creative Producer and CEO Robert Kronk said Statum is adventurous, exciting and “a bit risky”.

“We want to break down and re-imagine ideas of what circus arts and youth arts are,” he said. “The combination of circus and technology in this project gives us an opportunity to really stretch our artists and the form.”

Nathan Sibthorpe, director of Counterpilot and Statum’s co-director, was excited to use technology “to amplify, zoom in, splice open and reveal entirely new perspectives on the humans sharing our room. All the while somehow keeping the spirit of a good old carnival!”

Step inside and take a look around, this is going to get personal.
